Zenfolio | THE GREY GIANTS OF AFRICA by John Deakin Photography | About

A warm welcome to johndeakinphotography.com and my project 'The Grey Giants of Africa' which has been published recently as a book by my wife, Karen, to mark my 60th Birthday in a very special way. A small run of 20 books were subsequently printed by request from friends and family. We don't have any plans to print any further books for distribution from ourselves, however we have made the book available to buy direct from Blurb in two sizes / prices and also in ebook format. Whilst this can work out quite expensive for the printed books we have been asked to offer them and so we have done so for those that love elephants and monochrome photographs of them.
